Skip to comments.Romney Has More 'Maxed Out' Givers
Posted on 02/21/2012 5:53:32 PM PST by writer33
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is drawing a disproportionately high amount of campaign funds from people who have given him the legal maximum, weakening his ability to raise money from such proven donors as the GOP nomination fight drags on.
Far more than his three rivals, Mr. Romney has tapped these large donors to build his campaign fund. To date, about two-thirds of his money has come from donors who have given him $2,500, the legal limit for a primary campaign, according to the Campaign Finance Institute, a nonpartisan research organization.
By contrast, about 18% of Rick Santorum's money has come from those who have maxed out. For Newt Gingrich, the comparable figure is 16%; for Ron Paul, 11%.

For those interested.
Oh, well. It’s lousy being Willard, LOL.
Maybe prayers are being answered and he’s really on his way out.
Finish him off, Rick!
I heard GOP insiders are conceding that Romney is not inevitable
10k bets, 2.5k donors, Romney must be the candidate of the rich.
How in the hell they didn't realize this...months ago, tells me once again...the GOP-E are stupid beyond belief.
And frankly makes me dislike them more and more..................
Well No Duh; and we reject him like barfing up a rotten piece of ckicken infected with the flu.
Palin ripping Romney on Fox now.
What about Chinese dishwashers?
Fox just ran an anti-Santorum ad.
Sean just asked her, and Palin will not pick a candidate in Michigan :)
First we must defeat Romney.
Next, we must wave the scalp at all times in the future when the GOP-E tries to make us swallow poison.
Palin - Main Stream Media makes me sick.
I’d say the MSM is sick. ;^)
Just watched a FNC segment about how Romnuts and Paul are in cahoots and running duplicate attack ads against Rick in MI.
Conceivable that a Freeper’s former suggestion that “Rand for Veep” or some other cushy post for Ron’s golden boy might be in the offing.
Go away Ru and your sidekick, Rom...despicable men both.
Missed it, CC. What did Sarah say?
Did anyone else catch the Ferret coughing and choking on his segment with Monica?
Reminds me of the story about Beckel wolfing down a whole shrimp at lunch with The Five and Greg Gutfield had to do the heimlich on him. Shrimp came flying out and landed in the middle of the table and ruined their lunch. LOL
They shoulda just left him alone. One less Lib to have to deal with. :-)
One million bucks to meet a Cabinet Secretary... where does the money go?
If I buy a million dollars of crap from the Obama Campaign Store.... does that count against the cap?
I am supposed to believe that having a lot of maxed out donors is a negative?
There is no maximum to super PACs.
